CASA LA DUNA BEACH MANSION, 6 BEDROOMS, ELEVATOR, NEW POOL

St. Augustine House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

A perfectly private beach picnic or totally deluxe family vacation. Accommodating 14 guests in 5-star comfort & then some, our Casa La Duna Mansion is palatial in size & standard. With its own theater room, pool table & new private heated pool, it’s perfect for everyone. With its own elevator, it’s perfect for those with mobility problems.

Its private location at the end of a cul-de-sac allows you to enjoy ocean views and sprawling balcony space - over 2,000 square feet of outdoor living on 3 floors - all the more. Reminiscent of old-world plantation balconies, you get sweeping views and constant sunshine. In design, this home recalls a charming Bahamian plantation mansion. In features - a contender for MTV’s Cribs. And in ocean-front comfort? Unrivaled.

Your privacy is guaranteed while staying here. The home is tucked discretely at the end of a cul-de-sac. The front of the house itself is almost completely hidden behind a wall of palm trees. This makes the view at the back all the more your secret. Over 6,000 sq. ft of living space is improved with a further 2,000 sq. ft of sprawling balconies on three floors. Enjoy sunrise across the ocean, as seen from one of many comfortable spots on various balconies.

The main patio - the likes of which you’ve seen on the cover of Architectural Digest - makes an ideal entertaining space. There’s tons of room and lots of patio furniture to rearrange to your liking. Best of all (as of March 1, 2012), there is a brand new private heated pool to swim in!

As a perfect house for a group, there’s a great variety of living space inside and out. The grand foyer and great room both open to the floor above - soaring ceilings, with spotless tile and quality hardwood floors. This sleek home is custom from top to bottom, with tons of built-ins: bookshelves, flat-screen TVs and a fireplace. The living areas are dotted with Chinese antiques and local accessories - an inviting, eclectic home.

Just a few of the many treats to be discovered:

The best sectional sofa you’ve ever seen: very wide, very long with two in-built chaises. Non-stop entertainment: a pool table, wet bar and a massive home theater room. A gourmet kitchen with a subzero refrigerator, 29' Thermidor grill with double oven and Asko dishwasher, huge center island and adjoining dining room. 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. Sensational views of the Atlantic Ocean: sunrises galore! For sun and sand, just step out the door to the adjacent private beach.

Upstairs, you'll enjoy sweeping views of the water from the interior and exterior balconies. Four bedrooms and four full bathrooms are up on this level as well as two balconies. It's a nice, open floor plan. There are several rooms so comfortable for the children to sleep, watch TV, read or just horse around. The best is yet to come on the third floor, find your stunning master suite and an unending ocean view that’s all yours. If nonstop views from your king bed don’t tempt, vaulted ceilings and master bathroom suite with jacuzzi bath tub will. A few nights in this master suite and you’ll be dragged home kicking and screaming.

As of March 2012, the owners have updated the home with a brand new pool, and a new 1st level 6th bedroom with 2 queen beds, entertainment center with HDTV & Wii and a daybed. This room will be perfect for kids. The 1st floor also includes a pool table, wet bar and queen sleeper sofa.

When venturing out, simply step from the property grounds onto the adjacent beach walkover to the beach. We also manage the beachfront house next door, Heaven on Earth. Perfect for families traveling together.

My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!

And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.

The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!

CASA LA DUNA REVIEW

  • 4 of 5
Pros: Great location! Great House! Big enough for the entire family. Location was incredible. Walk over the dunes to the ocean. Quiet and secure location. Not one problem with facilities or equipment working properly. Everything worked great and we had a wonderful stay. Dishes and glassware were fine and there was a sufficient amount for our large family. <br/><br/>Cons: House could use fresh paint and updated carpeting. Secondary bedrooms were functional, but not of the quality one would expect for the cost of the house. Linens were the same. Kitchen utensils (pans, cookware, etc) were sorely lacking.

THANKSGIVING WEEK

  • 4 of 5
Our family stayed at this property for a week and it was very nice. Overall, the property requires a thorough examination of a handyman's talents to fix some general functions (i.e. locks) throughout the house.

GREAT HOUSE EXCEPT FOR.......

  • 5 of 5
I put my brother and his family in this house while I was next door. They loved the house and had a wonderful time there. The only negative comments I heard were that there were lots of dead love bugs in all the rooms upon arrival, the twin beds were rock hard and the ice maker didn't work.......nothing that they couldn't put up with.<br/><br/>

overall the home didn't live up to our expectations...for a reletively new luxury property the home was in a state of disrepair and the furnishings and amenaties did not live up to the description on the website...<br/>we arrived and found trim from the outside of the house blown off the side of the home...none of the tv's worked properly, there were big ugly stains in many of the carpets, the gas grill was disgusting and unusable, the beds were not of the caliber of a luxury home, the smoke alarms were chirping. A repair person came to fix the smoke alarms and simply disabled the alarm, he said that we would get a replacement tv and grill that never showed up. There is no way that that property can sleep 14. We struggled to sleep 10 and had 3 kids in one bedroom, i sleeping on a floor. We could not use the amenaties of the resort including the water park<br/>On a positive the house was in an incredible spot and we enjoyed the beach. The office was helpful in booking a couple tee times.
